Good luck, and keep us posted. Are you doing the lower intake gaskets, too?

Even with those, it CAN be done in 1 day. 2 is more than reasonable. I've done it myself on Jseabert'* car twice.

here here. 2 days tops. 1 w/o trouble. just make sure you don't break that littlt plastic elbow that goes to the lower intake... dealer only...

and please, for the love of your car - do the lowers!

Check out my post on what I found when I did the job last week.
Seriously consider doing the lowers and change that coolant elbow too.
That little elbow if it fails "will" get you stuck on the road.

Default lowers

Glad to hear your also doing the lowers. This should make the car a lot more reliable
for years to come.
